Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he was impressed with QB Nick Foles during his limited playing time last season and he will have an opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback job in 2013. 'I think it's to be determined but Nick showed an awful lot before he broke his hand,' Lurie said. 'Poise and accuracy. We're real excited about Nick. I think the best thing is to say to be determined how it's going to work, but he's going to have a great opportunity. He's really bright, he's a very hard worker, he has all the intangibles. We just have to see how he can maximize it or not.'
Huddle Up: Foles had his fantasy moments last season, but they were few and far between as he threw for only 6 TDs and had 2 300-yard games in 7 starts. Still, this promises to be a whole new Eagles team with a new coach and a new offense, and it will be intriguing to see what Foles can do if he gets the starting call.

The Kansas City Chiefs talked with the Philadelphia Eagles about a possible trade involving QB Nick Foles but there was no progress made.
Huddle Up: This makes a ton of sense, as new Chiefs coach Andy Reid was in Philly when Foles was drafted and made his NFL debut. And with Chip Kelly and his read-option offense now in Philadelphia, Foles could be available for a price. Now the key is the QB-needy Chiefs and QB-heavy Eagles reaching an agreement on a deal that would send Foles to Kansas City. Stay tuned...

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said that the team likely will not look to trade QB Nick Foles this offseason. 'Foles is a talented guy, and we just drafted him last year. I think this is a different situation than we've had the past couple of years where we had quarterbacks. We like the player. ... We're trying to accumulate good, young players. We're not in the business of trying to rid of good, young players,' Roseman said.
Huddle Up: Translation: If K.C. coach Andy Reid wants to swing a deal for his former QB, he's going to have to overpay.

The Kansas City Chiefs could express interest in Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles if he becomes available this offseason.
Huddle Up: This is a move that makes a ton of sense. Kansas City has a glaring need at the quarterback position, and new Chiefs coach Andy Reid has plenty of familiarity with Foles from their time together in Philadelphia last season.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (hand) underwent an MRI Monday which revealed a hairline fracture in his throwing hand. The injury will keep him out of the season finale.
Huddle Up: Which means, interestingly, welcome back, Michael Vick, who hasn't played since suffering a concussion Week 10 vs. the Cowboys. For Foles, meanwhile, it was a mixed bag as he completed 161-of-265 passes for 1,699 yards, 6 TDs and 8 turnovers, 5 of which were interceptions.

Philadelphia Eagles' QB Nick Foles completed 16-of-33 passes for 182 yards, a TD, interception and fumble, while RB Bryce Brown gained 45 total yards on 17 touches Thursday night in a 34-13 Week 15 home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Foles failed to follow up his career-best 381-yard, 3-TD outing against the Bucs in Week 14. The rookie QB was charged with a pair of turnovers, but the fumble should've went to Brown who never did find a grip on a good handoff in the second half. And as for Brown, the rookie RB has fallen off the fantasy map following back-to-back monster outings in Weeks 12 and 13 (a combined 347 rushing yards & 4 TDs) with a total of 39 rushing yards and no scores over his past 2 outings.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said Monday, Dec. 3, QB Nick Foles will start at quarterback for the remainder of the season. Reid added that QB Michael Vick is in Stage 4 of the NFL's concussion protocol system and is showing signs of improvement; however, Reid made it clear that Foles will start even when Vick is cleared to return
Huddle Up: No surprise here, although Foles likely made the decision easier Sunday night when he had best outing of the season by throwing for 251 yards, a TD and no turnovers in the loss to the Cowboys. Look for similiar numbers down the stretch with a few more rookie miscues mixed in.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 16 of his 21 pass attempts for 119 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers on Monday, Nov. 26, in his first home NFL start.
Huddle Up: The Philly rookie now has had 2-plus games to show his wares with Michael Vick (concussion) sidelined, but the results have been anything but impressive as he's thrown for only 542 yards and one TD over that span. In the meantime, fantasy GMs who own any Eagles' pass catchers have seen their productiveness take a noticeable dip as well.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles went 21-for-46 for 204 yards and two interceptions against the Washington Redskins in Week 11.
Huddle Up: The Eagles had a new QB, but unfortunately, the rest of the personnel remained the same, and he failed to guide Philly into the end zone while being picked off twice and sacked 4 times. Foles also fumbled 3 times, but the Eagles recovered all of them.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick has been ruled out for Week 11. QB Nick Foles will start.
Huddle Up: Vick is still recovering from the concussion that knocked him out of last week's loss to the Cowboys. Foles will make his first NFL start against a Redskins defense that has been quite kind to opposing quarterbacks, so if QB-geddon has you scrambling for a fantasy starter he's a viable option this week.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will start at quarterback in the team�s Week 11 game, replacing injured QB Michael Vick (concussion).
Huddle Up: Foles didn't look terrible outside of a few horrendous picks and near picks. He looks to improve on that performance with a week of work with the starters.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will start in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 24, and may play up to a half. QB Trent Edwards will be the No. 2 quarterback in the game.
Huddle Up: Michael Vick's preseason is done after suffering a rib injury in last week's exhibition game, so Philly will take a long look at the rookie to see if he can hold up to what is always a critical position: Vick's injury replacement.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mike Kafka (hand) fractured his left (non-throwing) hand in the team's preseason opener and will be limited for the next three weeks. Kafka will be able to participate in practice drills where he does not have to take snaps from center. QB Nick Foles will work with the No. 2 offense in 'live' practice periods.
Huddle Up: This is a big step for Foles, the team's third-round pick. The rookie from Arizona was impressive in the Eagles' 24-23 exhibition-opening win over the Steelers on Thursday, completing 6-of-10 passes for 144 yards and a pair of TDs. Kafka should be close to ready by the regular season, but, regardless, Philly's backup situation always bears watching with starter Michael Vick's lengthy injury history.
